The property development segment registered a 44 per cent jump in revenue year-on-year, property investment recorded eight per cent increase, while leisure and hospitality's revenue increased 38 per cent.

"The increase in revenue in the property development segment was mainly due to significant contributions from the group's overseas projects in Singapore and Xiamen (China), and local township developments -- Warisan Puteri (Sepang) and Conezion (IOI Resort City Putrajaya)," said Lee.

The group recently launched Par 3, a development of 207 freehold condominium units located at IOI Resort City.
